  • Gananoque man earns workplace award

    For most people, their home is clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy.

    For a 43-year-old professional cleaner at a local long-term care home, those standards might not be good enough.

    Speaking in late April 2022, Edward Allan of Gananoque talks with pride about his job for the past two years as a housekeeper at Carveth Care Centre which named him Employee of the Month for May.

    Managers describe him as a good worker who interacts well with residents.

    Speaking on behalf of the home, Julie Dennison, Head of Housekeeping, notes, “Edward is full of energy and has great attendance. He’s wonderful with the residents and is always looking out for them.”

    “Edward is great at acknowledging the residents,” adds Heather Wilson, a Unit Clerk who doesn’t work directly with him, but admires his efficiency and capability. “He is polite, thoughtful and has a positive attitude.

    “When Edward is working in an area close to my office, he respects how this is our residents’ home,” says Heather, kindly. “He always makes an effort to talk to people and make them feel comfortable and connected.”


  • Home welcomes new kitchen manager

    Helen Henderson Care Centre in Amherstview has a new kitchen manager.

    Shaun Stephenson, a cook in the home for the past seven years, accepted the job in April 2022.

    “I like it here. I think it’s a great place to work,” says Shaun, 45, from his office located next to the home’s commercial kitchen. “It’s nice that the owners are here and that they are accessible. That makes a huge difference.”

    Shaun was offered the job based on his skill, experience, and ability to see the best in difficult situations.

    “It is always great to be able to promote talent from within and we were very fortunate that Shaun was looking for growth opportunities when this position became available,” says Administrator Lisa Gibson. “Shaun is an excellent Red Seal Chef who is not only creative in food preparation, but also has great leadership qualities. I look forward to seeing the positive changes he will bring to the department and our residents dining experience.”

    Shaun assumes responsibility for a kitchen that oversees 70 residents in the retirement lodge and 104 residents in long-term care.
